My Approach to Helping
I believe that clients can learn to make good choices and lead meaningful lives. To do this, I work with my clients to understand their family dynamics and identify the behaviors that result from being part of their family structure and history. I find that patterns emerge that can be used to empower clients to make different, healthy choices. Helping my clients go from struggle and hopelessness to empowerment and success is what I have been focused on for 22 years.
More Info About My Practice
I work with a physician who is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine. He provides medication assisted treatment for patients dependent on opiates and alcohol and I provide most of the counselling and therapy for these patient.
My Role as a Therapist
I have a great deal of experience working with individuals struggling with fractured relationships, the difficulties of blended families and intergenerational conflicts, and drug and alcohol addiction. I am also skilled at helping clients cope with aging parents and the difficulties of being a caregiver. I am a CBT therapist, however, I do incorporate other modalities.
